First-time fiction writers often get stuck in the middle of writing a novel mainly because they do not have an outline they can stick to. Outlining a novel before writing is essential for carrying on with a story of 80,000 words or more.

This book includes ten questions after answering which you will be have the entire outline of your novel in front of you. You will have built your protagonist, antagonist, major characters, setting, plot, theme, narrative POV and genre of your novel.

It will also help you to learn the art of visualization, polish your prose, keep yourself motivated throughout the writing and build the first scene of your book. Avoid writer’s block and obvious potholes; get a book under your name this time.

Some excellent advice. Great for the first time writer, although I will certainly use it again and again for the prompts.
